After hotel pickup, you’ll follow a scenic route from Flagstaff via State Route 89A, passing tall pines against a backdrop view of the San Francisco Peaks, a volcanic mountain range.
Marvel at the hues of the Painted Desert as you enter the Navajo Nation. Your guide makes a stop at the Cameron Trading Post, established in 1916. Browse for American Indian arts and crafts of the Southwest and grab lunch or a snack (own expense) while enjoying views of the Little Colorado River Gorge.
Your journey continues on to Grand Canyon National Park, where you’re treated to a variety of overlooks that demonstrate the canyon’s play of light and shadow. Observe the colors change throughout the afternoon.
Upon arrival at Grand Canyon Village, you’re treated to a delicious dinner at the historical Bright Angel Lodge, located at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon.
After dinner, join your guide for a sunset walk along the rim. Photo ops abound at two scenic viewpoints that show off dramatic sunset colors across the vast chasm; you can focus your lens all the way to the North Rim. Once you watch the sun dip on the horizon, your guide will transport you back to your hotel.
